The food here is Tex Mex and very good. The large number of TVs in the bar is excellent for watching sports. Note: for whatever reason the bar here closes around 11pm.

Haven't been to a Paradiso in a long time but had a hankering for Mexican food. I found the food to be a mere shadow of what it used to be like. Salsa had the same flavor of a can of Hunt's Canned tomatoes. Chips...More
